of billions in spending by ensuring the pentagon can pass an audit. mr. speaker, we face many challenges, but we must not allow our political crisis to create an economic crisis for millions of americans who are struggling. now is not the time to turn our backs on struggling families just to preserve tax give aways to millionaires and billionaires. we must come together to wage a war on poverty and end the war on the poor. and finally a 350 economists have said, we need jobs first. with recovery, deficit reduction will come by its own accord thanks to increased revenues in an improving economy. they went on to say that public outrage for jobs and recovery comes first, budget cuts only lead to a deeper slump. thank you, i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the house shall be in recess one of the stories we are following across the c-span networks is the house and senate hearings on the attack on the u.s. consequence klatt -- consulate in benghazi libya. among those testifying today is the acting dire
that now involved the cia, the fbi the pentagon, the white house, and congress. so much for nothing to distract from avoiding the fiscal cliff. >>> and recommend how president obama and mitt romney yukd yucked it up? the president had the last laugh. find out how he did it in today's deep dive. it's not how you think. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, november 13, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. right to my first read of the morning. just when you thought the petraeus story couldn't get more complicated and troubling. it did. lots of headlines to get to on this. another top military general linked to the scandal, marine general john allen, the top american and nato commander in afghanistan. according to a u.s. senior defense official the fbi uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of e-mails between the general and jill kelley. now kelley is the woman whose initial complaint to the fbi led to the discovery of evidence about the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. defense secretary panetta's comments on the scandal and hi
an unusual pentagon briefing that the timeline of events in libya as we now know them may be a far cry from what actually went on in benghazi. we're going to talk with pete leg seth about this new version of events is so troubling troubd where this story goes from here as it continues to unfold. >>> there are a growing number of reports out this week suggesting gun and ammunition sales are soaring in recent weeks, driven in part by a concern about a second term for president obama and that it could mean new restrictions on the rights of gun owners. trace gallagher is looking looko this phenomenon. hello, trace. >> reporter: hey, shannon. the most reliable way to track gun sales is by looking at the number of background checks being conducted. when president obama took office, the number of background checks went up by 1.5 million, they have steadily gone up since then. 2009, 11.4 million background checks, 11.5 in 2010. then look at the jump, 13 million background checks in 2011, and so far this year 14.8 million background checks and a lot of gun owners say in the past four or fife days --
. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, john allen. the defense secretary leon panetta says the pentagon has launched an internal investigation into thousands of quote, inappropriate communications between general allen right there on the screen and that woman in yellow, kelly. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. you almost need like one of those boards to put all the pictures up, catherine. >> reporter: you do rick. beyond the issue of failing to notify congress about the fbi investigation the democratic chair of the senate intelligence committee is threatening to subpoena a report summarizing director petraeus's trip to libya when he personally looked into the fwauz gauze attack. he personally interviewed cia staff on the ground in libya including the station chief and the report may be only in unfinish draft form. the departure was sudden and unexpected even by the director. so far virtually every known investigative thread in the case now leads back to jill kelly, a woman described as an unpaid social liaison for the military in tampa, florida. thi
are debating whether to charge her with a crime. jennifer griffin working this angle from the pentagon tonight. jennifer, she did have permission to have some classified information. it's just, well, they don't know which. >> well, she had permission until it was taken away in recent days due to this current fbi investigation. paula broadwell is an army military reserve lt. colonel who has security clearance to view classified information but not to take it home with her. the fbi says that there is no evidence so far that david petraeus shared classified documents with broadwell, shep. >> shepard: and the fbi director jennifer was on capitol hill today talking about -- talking to lawmakers about this investigation. >> that's right. after congressional leaders from the intelligence committees complained about not being informed until now. the leaders of the senate select intelligence committee senators dianne feinstein and cincinnati saxby chambliss released a joint statement in which they said, quote: today we received a comprehensive briefing from fbi director robert muller and the deputy di
at the pentagon for us. good morning. tell us, what is the status of the investigation right now? >> well, good morning, alina. "the new york times" is now reporting this morning that the investigation actually began some months ago. but, again, the questions continue to mount. it wasn't until election night that the director of national intelligence, james clapper, was informed that this was all going on. the white house informed the next day,and the president the day after that. so how you have an fbi investigation, which whatever went on did involve looking into the matters of general david petraeus, your cia director, and the president isn't informed. this is one of the key questions congress, the congressional committee's concerned, they weren't informed. so expect to see a lot more about this for the next many days. >> barbara, let's talk a little bit more about that. as you mentioned the white house wasn't notified until 5:00 p.m. on election night. the president wasn't told until the thursday after election day. house and senate intelligence committees weren't told until last week. i kn
keeps talking about. huge military cutbacks and the pentagon may have to lay off as many as 6,000 mistresses. that's what they're saying. >> we need to talk about the fiscal cliff but i'm dying to ask you about this scandal because it's all anyone is talking about. >> yeah. this sex scandal is all anyone in washington can talk about. i wonder why the country is in financial ruin. >>> the late night comedians had some fun with it, that looming fiscal cliff is serious business. with taxes set to rise on all americans starting january 1st, along with massive budget cuts, all of which could push the economy back into a recession. on friday, president obama and congressional leaders sat down to start negotiations about how to avoid that cliff and came out sounding optimistic. >> and i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. >> we've already been through it before. so on friday i went to the capitol to ask house leader nancy pelosi how realistic it is that we'll get a deal done. leader pelosi, you all came out of the meeting with th
perhaps not yet. i want to bring in cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, adultery can be a crime in the military but it is not in the cia. it can, however, be a risky, risky endeavor. are there any indications at this point that our national security was threatened in the petraeus case? >> well, ashleigh, so far there is no indication of that but the facts have not come out in public. earlier today retired general james "spider "marks who broadwell once worked for and knows petraeus addressed this very question. >> there's absolutely almost zero percent chance that national security was compromised or was at risk. now, clearly, based on an initial investigation, there might have been classified documents that were found on her laptop. again, that might be more procedural than it is a large risk. so that needs to be looked into and that needs to be put aside so you can end that discussion and frankly you can let dave petraeus and paula go on with their lives because frankly the cia is going to be okay. >> look, by all accounts, broadwell, a reservist in the military, al
might not get that from cnn a spokesperson for the pentagon in many ways. >> our own notebook there, a body slam of cnn and the generals. i want to show you cnn's reaction. >> bob is not a spokesperson for the agency. >> i followed her coverage closely. >> just because she's written naughty things about you doesn't make her a spokesperson. >> what makes her a spokesperson is repeating a lot of pentagon claims. >> journalists who challenge the government are seen as oh, wacky outsiders, and the only thing that ever gets you in trouble is not reckless wars that kill hundreds of thousands of people, but sex. >> at beginning, i was thinking the same thing why is this going on because of a sex scandal, it's between him and his wife. but then, a few other angles came saying this could be a security issue who knew, who didn't know. i'm fine with all those questions being answered. what's weird and i understand from a different level is people forget they hold these positions, hey do me this favor, send me those emails, by the way don't you like my at-bats. they hold these powerful position
by the pentagon's inspector general for what officials describe as potentially inappropriate e-mails with one of the women directly involved in the case. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, has more on an ever-widening story. >> reporter: the scandal involving two very different women, tampa socialite jill kelley and petraeus biographer and former mistress paula broadwell ensnared not only petraeus but his successor. marine general john allen who took over from petraeus in afghanistan and is the president's choice to be supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe, a nomination now temporarily on hold. >> thank you for all that you have done, for me and for our precious daughters. >> reporter: the general is married with a sterling record. but on a flight to australia monday night, aides to defense secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing betw
in spending over the next ten years for the pentagon? what's a reasonable part of the deal for na? >> i think a reasonable one is actually about the amount in the sequestration. that's a little bit less than what the boles-simpson commission had. they had about $750 billion. if you take a salmi slice cut like the sequestration bill does, you will harm the military. if you're able to say, wait a moment, maybe we don't need quite as many submarines and we need a sensor system and you can change how we are to the systems we're procuring, then you're able to do this decrease in spending if you put it in the right capability. that's the enormous change that we have to have in our military. look, the navy dpom natuominate commons of the seas and the air force dominates the commons of the air. we have to dominate the commons of cyberspace. look what we did to iran. when we take down centrifuges that enrich the terrain yum. by one virus we stymied them for a while. imagine if we read everything out there and the other side knows that we can do that kind of damage. that is what is very difficult to br
it was important to refer the matter to the pentagon's inpeck tore general. the senior defense official tells nbc news that panetta didn't make this decision lightly. secretary clinton acknowledged she has talked to u.s. partners about the allen case but says it won't harm the war effort. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who has been an important part of the nato isap mission in afghanistan. there's been a lot of conversation, as you might expect, bob, but no concern whatsoever being expressed to us because the mission has been set forth. it is being carried out. >> the head of nato also told reporters today in brussels that he has full confidence in general allen. we are also learning more about the 20,000 to 30,000 documents that include some e-mails between general allen and the tampa socialite jill kelley which the pentagon calls potentially inappropriate communications. the fbi has characterized some of the e-mails as, quote, flirtatious. the general strongly denies any misconduct and the fbi has not found any wrongdoing. we're also learning more about kelley herself
pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski, petraeus himself wanted to do this and called his old colleagues at the cia and said, listen, i know they want to hear from me, i want to testify so they want to hear from him, he wants to testify so it's going to happen. it should be clarified here though, thomas, it won't be an open session. it'll be a closed session because obviously they'll be discussing classified information. >> pete, the other interesting thing we're just learning this new information about the e-mails between jill kelley and general allen and one source describing to nbc news that they were friendly, not so much of a sexual nature. we're talking about thousands of e-mails here but what more can you tell us? >> i don't think we know exactly how many e-mails there are because we've heard a wide range of numbers. it was apparently at least several hundred. what the upper end of that is i think we don't know. but, you know, people close to general allen are saying that he was just the kind of guy who would say, you know, if somebody gave him a compliment, thanks, sweetie, thank
and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails to jill kelly. now, if you remember from yesterday, kelly is the same woman who sparked this whole investigation because petraeus' mistress paula broadwell was sending her e-mails. allen is saying he did nothing wrong and is maintaining his current position within the military. now, many are wondering why the fbi would get involved if this is nothing more than an affair. but we're now hearing fears of potential security leaks. in a speech at the university of denver broadwell suggested the libya attack was targeting a secret prison at the benghazi consulate. federal agents have been searching broadwell's home. late last night and into early this morning. not only did she have thousands of e-mails between her and petraeus detailing the affair. she also had classified material on her computer. as of yet the fbi doesn't believe that came from petraeus but it is illegal. more bill
to the pentagon, do you consider that to be inappropriate for a commander-in-chief when american citizens are under fire? >> well, i do think it is inappropriate. and i also think that the administration had in mind a certain scenario, that they were pushing. the idea, as we saw on five separate appearances by our u.n. ambassador over the weekend where the thesis was that this was a, was after all, a protest that had spun out of control. i think they had bought into a storyline that didn't match the reality on the ground, and it was very hard for them as a consequence to adjust to the fact that it was an al qaeda attack. but occurring on 9/11, it should been obvious to them, and certainly obvious to other consulates in the area that al qaeda was operating and indeed training, not far from the benghazi facility. gregg: congressman, what is the one thing you hope to learn today? >> well, when what i would like to know when the request was made for help who in the chain of command denied that help to our ambassador and to our team there on the ground. gregg: do you have suspicions? >> i do n
, and oracle records and so far it just has been from the pentagon. i hate to see this. they have worked so hard. but there is the ability to break it as well. >> it always makes sense to me. thank you for coming on tonight. gerri: millions of people now playing video games on their smartphones. some find it a great way to pass the time. for every time you take the phone out of your pocket, the higher the risk of it is that it will be lost or stolen. it all depends on where you live. on tonight's top five, the cities with the highest rate of smartphones that. at number five, newark, new jersey. number four is long beach california an oakland california is next. and number two is seattle. a lot of smart forms there. and the number one hotspot for smartphone that is philadelphia. that is a shocker. across the country about 30 million phones stolen, lost or stolen and the most likely place is a fast food restaurant or grocery store. coming up next, the market has taken quite a hit over the last few days. you will have gerri: here is something that you may be wondering about. the dow has fallen
we are learning more about skess about him and the pentagon investigation and alleged behavior does the president have faith that general allen can continue to lead the war in afghanistan. he's under investigation by the pentagon. >> can i tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. as well as the job he has done in afghanistan. at the request of the secretary of defense, the president has put on hold general allen's notion as supreme allied commander europe, pending the investigation of his conduct by the department of defense i.d. the president remains focused on fully supporting our extraordinary troops and coalition partners in afghanistan who general allen continues to lead as he has done so ably for over a year. meanwhile, the president has nominated general dunford to be the next commander and reiterates his belief that the senate should act swiftly to confirm him, his hearings are this week. >> is it ack to a -- accurate to say the president has full faith in general allen? >> he believes he's doing and done an excellent jo
on that night. general joseph dunford is stepping down at the marine corps's second in command. the pentagon calls both moves routine successions. also the navy has replaced charles gauuette due to recent allegations of, quote, inappropriate leadership judgment not otherwise described. there's been some tension between the state department, the cia and the pentagon in recent weeks as they've worked in the words of one official to sync up their benghazi time lines. thursday the closed door hearing intelligence officials will show senators benghazi's surveillance video with a timeline for the first time. >> sharyl, thanks. retired general richard myers is cbs news' military security analyst and former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> general myers, general petraeus served under you. you know this man well. should he have resigned? is this the kind of thing that a military man should resign who is no longer serving the military, but at the cia? >> certainly if he were still in the military, yes, he should have resigned. i think anybody in charge
and that's got to be balanced. it has to include revenues and squeezing the pentagon a bit and obviously, maybing some entitlement reforms. if the leap adership an preside can negotiate that, that's great, but the worst option would be if they failed to negotiate and i'm a real skeptic, then the worst thing we could do is change the date from january 1 to say august or september. that would send a terrible signal to the markets. congress once again dodging its responsibilities and our responsibilities to come up with something that's durable and sustainable. if january 1 comes then, it's not so much a cliff as it is a slope. we would be under enormous pressure to come up with that balanced deal, so my view is much better for us to get a good, durable deal that is achieved before and after january 1. >> so, congressman, you know, i never want to hear the term fiscal which i have again. i mean, the election sent a mandate. we want something done. >> you're right about that and if the leadership and the president are able to negotiate and we get it done, that would be the best thing. but yo
. as painful as it may be, as difficult as it may be, the pentagon has to step up. they have to find ways to save money, too. and i think a lot of those on the left feel that we've gone too deep into education and other programs. let's make sure this is balanced from this point forward. >> senator, before we let you go, switching topics a bit, i assume that much of today's press conference or a lot of it, too much of it, will be preoccupied with the two co-stars of "you've got mail," general petraeus and paula broadwell, but it leads to a larger issue, many people think, and that is the repeated deployments of the american military to afghanistan following on iraq and the impact it has on service families left behind and the war itself, the lingering 12-year war. what's your view on all of this? >> mike, you put your finger on it. we ought to talk about the real cost of war. it is not just in dollar terms. it certainly includes the terrible loss of life, over 5,000 americans in iraq and afghanistan. it means those who came back with injuries and the impact on individuals and families afte
in his cabinet, before bob gates in the pentagon for the better part of the first term. i think he wants to do that again. his instinct towards not necessarily to hagel, although i think he is under consideration for one of the jobs, but it's a good time for the reboot and i think we're going to see that happen. >> it's a complicated reboot, right? we knew that clinton was leaving, geithner wants to go, we heard panetta, those were gives. as tom friedman says -- the whole middle east erupts in one giant sound and light show of civil wars, states collapsing and refugee dislocations as the keystone of the region syria gets pulled under and the disorder across the neighborhood and you were worried about the fiscal cliff. >> governor? >> i think john is right about the personnel changes. this is the time. every administration goes through it. if you're re-elected you're going to have this turnover and this is the best time for it. we didn't want it before the election. john is right you don't want it five months down the road when your second term is under way. i want to terry a bit too, if
dozen or body heat or the year of living dangerously or the love pentagon or how paula got her groove back. something. we'll figure it out. but you get steve buscemi to play general petraeus. he's got the look and this way of giving you a deep inner sliminess. the paula broadwell role is so juicy. you know who has to win, angie jolie. the sex appeal, the toughness. can't you see the scenes of her and the general running through the mountains of afghanistan during which they find a cave and do some cardio. back at home we see the wife, holly petraeus, played by kathy bates. we get bruce willis to play general allen because his entrance makes the story even more bizarre. and to play jill kelley, the hot wife who unnerved the tough broadwell and made an fbi agent go mad and called the fbi launching the whole investigation i would would point back to her, we get, yep, kim kardashian. so what if she can't act. no one can resist her. a general is sending her thousands of e-mails, the sfib sending her shirtless photos, and who will play him, that fbi agent? that's a no-brainer. the situation
investigated for sending what the pentagon said were potentially inappropriate messages, putting on hold his likely promotion to become the supreme allied commander in europe. >> of course, it weighs on him. as much as it weighs on dave petraeus. i believe that dave is very, very sad for what he has admitted he did. >> reporter: at the center of this web, jill kelley, the tampa socialite and honorary military ambassador, living near the centcom headquarters, where petraeus and allen were once based. officials say it was early this summer that kelley received anonymous e-mails accusing her of flaunting her friendly relationships with top military brass. the fbi traced those e-mails become to paula broadwell's computer where they discovered the evidence of broadwell's affair with david petraeus. but it doesn't stop there. abc news has learned that general allen also received an anonymous e-mail traced to paula broadwell painting jill kelley as a seductress. a further look by the fbi into kelley's e-mails revealed hundreds between kelley and general allen. 20,000 to 30,000 pages of communicatio
's start with what kyra was saying, barbara starr, who is at the pentagon. she didn't know him ever to be flirtatious and said a number of his friends were describing paula broadwell as someone who is agreesive and works her magic as she ensnares men with her mayingness, i guess, all around. so i'm not really surprised that the general's friends would be spinning it this way. what insight can you give us on this? >> let me cut to the chase. kyra is absolutely right. two people involved, to say the least. when we know, soledad, is that general petraeus in the last several days has authorized personal personally several of his former aides to talk to the news media, including me. i have spoken to steve boylan, his former spokesman in iraq. steve tells me general petraeus authorized him to speak to the news media. first, let's be terribly clear. general petraeus still putting out his words, his version of events through many of his former military aides. as for miss broadwell, she will have to speak her piece when she chooses to. you know, i think that it's also worth absolutely noting
department, the cia and the pentagon in recent weeks as they work in the words of one official to sync up their bengazhi timeline. thursday the closed door hearing intelligence officials will show a benghazi timeline. >> senior correspondent john miller former assistant director of national against is with us along with retired general richard myers. he's a former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. good morning. general myers, general petraeus served under you, you know this man well. should he have resigned? is this the kind of thing that a military man should resign who is no longer serving the military but at cia. >> if you were in the military yes he should have resign. anybody that's in charge of our secrets like general petraeus was, there are a lot of folks under him that take polygraphs that try to get at are you having affairs, are you vulnerable to outside forces that could force to you leak classified information. he heads the biggest intelligence agency we have in that regard, at least the most sensitive intelligence and i think it's perfectly roper he resign. >> your surp
a said on a number of occasions, the pentagon, the intelligence community believe that this legislation is vitally to the safety and security of our country. so before thanksgiving, we're going to finish the sports men's bill, we're going to have -- the republicans need to kill the cybersecurity bill. they've been following the lead of the chamber of commerce, which is an arm of the republican party anymore. it is just a front for the republican party. they spend huge amounts of money that they get from unknown sources to defeat democrats. they wasted their money this time, but that's the way it is. they are opposing this bill for not any logical reason. then we -- senator levin and mccain have asked to go to defense authorization. i think if this bill is as important as they say it is -- and they say it is important; i know how senator levin and senator mccain feel about it -- looks like they would clear away some of this stuff that's getting in the way. but that's where we are. i think it is religionly a bridge too far to complete the defense authorization bill before we leave but we
the pentagon -- military spending. what is your own view on whether or not this government should be prepared to go beyond the 400 a $7 billion the president targeted in terms of reduction in defense spending and go further? something closer to the $600 -- $600 billion figure. >> we did $487 billion in reductions as part of the original budget control act. it is important to know there were reductions up projected increases. it was not a reduction of the baseline. since then bowles had about as much savings if he went over the fiscal cliff. the sequester is an irresponsible way to deal with cuts weathered defense or non- defense because it is across the board. in terms of the magnitude of defense savings i think $5 billion cuts is excess of. i do think there are additional savings to be made a in defense. the chairman has said another $100 billion, others have made good arguments for how you can do a little bit -- the main issue is what is the military strategy. the reality is we are doing lots of things that enter the military that are still looking toward the cold war strategy. we need to f
revealed. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon with more on this, including a fox news exclusive. >> or well, we've been looking at a speech that paula broadwell gave on october 26th in denver, colorado, and in that speech she raises some serious questions that some are wondering whether she may have revealed details that she knew about the benghazi investigations, details that broadwell may have, in fact, obtained from her relationship with cia director david petraeus. at this speech at her alma mater in denver on october 26th, the same day as fox news reported by the way that requests from the ci ark annex were -- cia annex were denied, she said this: >> the cia annex had actually, had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoners, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get the prisoners back, so that's still being vetted. >> reporter: being vetted by whom, the cia? that wasn't in any of the official cia timelines. the implication is that the attack on the u.s. consulate was, n. a strike against the cia opera
will be held to a higher accounting. he has to bring it out. the pentagon will do that as well. the cia, the fbi, the president, all making sure that this is not swept under the carpet here. john, i do not know. when i saw him, these men are away for a long time. my stepfather was in the military. my first husband had a silver star in vietnam. i know what it is like for men and women to be separated. i feel sorry for holly and her family, but at the same time these men, they are not robots. host: diane, thank you for the call this morning. here is the editorial from "the wall street journal." it notes that "if the leaks are correct, the fbi was investigating him for months." host: edward, independent line, thank you for calling. caller: thank you for taking my call. i feel the general is an honorable man who made a mistake. we're all human and we all make errors. most politicians would not do that. that being said, i would like to make a comment about this benghazi thing. republicans have made such a big deal out of it. ronald reagan sent over 200 marines to their death and there was no
in the region. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr's been watching what's going on. barbara, what is the u.s. military most concerned about right now? >> wolf, as they watch that call-up of 75,000 israeli reservists, that is the concern. is this leading to a ground war? we've talked to officials here who say the major concern israel will move in on the ground. and that will be a significant escalation that will reverberate throughout the region. so here's the calculation. how far will hamas go in continuing its rocketed mortar attacks into israel? they know that if they pull back, the israelis presumably will pullback and this dangerous escalation can be avoided. if there is a ground war, if israeli troops cross that border, the tanks and troops, and go into gaza, the next concern is what egypt will do. egypt's new government very fragile. will it feel the pressure to move? will it come into sanai, all of this now at the end of a long week in washington. >> diplomats in the region and around the world are working hard behind the scenes to stop this from becoming an all-out war. what are yo
. less revenue than simpson- bowles. >> you also get another $600 billion in savings from the pentagon. what is your view about whether this country should be prepared to go beyond the $487 billion that the president initially targeted? >> i do think there are additional savings to remain in defense spending. it is important to be clear that those reductions were reductions from projected increases. it lot -- it was not a reduction from the baseline. if you go off the fiscal cliff, it is not anothe $500 billion billion. that was part of the simpson- bowles framework. the sequester is an irresponsible way to do with cuts whether it is defense or non-defense. it is across the board bus soffex. in terms of the magnitude of defense savings, five of hundred dollar billion cuts for 10 years is excessive. there are additional savings to be made in defense. senator levin has said another heaven -- hundred dollars billion. the key is to -- we should not have the budget decisions driving these decisions exclusively. -and not be the main component. what is our military strategy? we are doing lots
